OFFERING MY BODY FOR LENT ( SKIN is not SIN)

“SKIN IS NOT SIN”
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you…” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
What wonderful picture of our body being temple of God. Only Christianity gives this value to our body.
Why is our physical body so important?
It’s important because our physical activity either leads us to sin or to be holy.
Eve in the Bible saw the fruit was good, pleasing to the eye (physical activity), and also desirable (mind or thoughts) for gaining wisdom… Disobeyed God (lost their fellowship with God).
Body → Mind → Soul (Spirit).
All starts with how you treat your body ( all the senses).
Take care of your body, treat it with proper care and nurture it with holiness.
So this Lent let us treat our bodies as Temple of God.
To be continued …
